This Halloween, we investigate who’s making the biggest bloody mess on TV these days and who's the goriest of them all...The Strain
Something in your eye? Maybe it’s worms. Evil vampires are on the loose in NYC. A man keeps a beating heart in a jar, cadavers get sliced open, heads get bashed in...
Notes: Lots of icky stuff
Also read:Creepiest Halloween destinations around the world Hannibal
A soap opera about a cannibalistic serial killer. Shots of naked women with lungs removed, corpses in car parks (their organs replaced with flowers). And, someone eats their own nose
Notes: Lessons in biology, gastronomy and cruelty all at once True Blood
Humans die tastefully. Vampires explode in splashes of sticky blood and stringy entrails. Stuff sizzles, skin comes apart, flesh melts...
Notes: Graphic but pretty contained
Also read: Men should watch True Blood too!The Walking Dead
As the world gets taken over by the undead, kids get shot. Tanks are full of severed undead heads, eyes get stabbed. And everyone’s so shabbily dressed!
Notes: You’ll weep at every death American Horror Story
Child monsters, live amputations, lampshades made from human skin, biting faces off
Notes: Each season there’s a new story and looks different, so you’re never jaded Penny Dreadful
If you can tear your eyes away from Eva Green, you’ll see a crucifix infested with spiders and sex with an invisible demon. It all looks worse in badly-lit Victorian Dublin. Even the orgies look gross (because Victorians didn’t bathe?)
Notes: Nudity and violence for the sake of it
